Hey there, I was curious about where I could put my jack stand after lifting up the car from the rear jack pinch point.

I've seen people put their jack stand at an area located near the front jack pinch point (please see pics).

Looking at the area around the rear jack pinch point it does look like it has the same kind of frame where people I would see on Youtube put their jack stands, except in all the videos they lifted up the front of the car. I was wondering if the rears have something similar where I can put my stand, after lifting up the car from the nearby rear pinch point.

Reason I ask is I'm going to be working on my brakes. I have 2 jack stands combined at 3 tons, I plan to jack up the car with my 3 ton floor jack the pinch point, place the jack stand at that nearby spot that I mention if possible, and then reapply light pressure with jack again for support.

ALSO, testing out the jack on the pinch point, after a few pumps to bring the car up I noticed when the wheels come completely off the ground I get a somewhat loud creak around the pinch point. I am new to jacking up cars, so I was wondering if this is normal?! Please let me know, thanks! :)

Hope that makes sense! :)

Take a look at this thread/video - 2018+ Accord Jack Up onto Jack Stands.... think it will answer your question.
thanks I seen this one, but he put he put his stands at the pinch point. I've seen other people on youtube jack up the car from the pinch point and then put their jack stand at a nearby location. Reason is my driveway is not too large, so I plan to jack up 1 out of 4 areas at a time to work on my brakes. I just wanted to know if this method is viable, here are 2 videos where I saw people do this:
^if you pause around 1:52 you can see his jack stand nearby, I was wondering if I can do the same setup for the rears as well^. Here's the other video:

If I understand you correctly you want to use the jack on the pinch points to jack car up one side/one point at a time... then I can't see any harm in that. IMO that wouldn't be any different then being on the side of the road and using supplied jack in one of the four pinch points to change a flat tire.

Yeah, the stand comes in to play for that added protection since my car will be lifted for while to change my rotors and pads.

Why wouldn’t you just jack up the rear end from the center rear jack point, then put your stands at the pinch points on both sides? (Also chock your front wheels.)
The last time I tried that, I ended up having to add one or two (sorry don't remember exactly) layers of 2x4 under the front wheels in order to get the car high enough to put jackstands under both rear jack points at the same time. YMMV depending on things like the specs of the floor jack and jack stands you're using and individual vehicle (mine is stock height)...
